KASOAG LAKE UPDATES
Letter From The President
The Officers and Board of Directors are happy to announce our application for tax exempt, 501(c)3 status has been approved by the IRS as of November 30, 2016, with an effective date of September 2, 2016. This will allow the KLCA to make applications for grants that were closed to us previously.
KLCA is having a Winter 50/50 raffle, again….. "Khloe Kasoag" is just waiting for the Spring thaw. Khloe is Kermit Kasoag’s second cousin removed. She is Kasoag’s Ice Princess, spending her time practicing her ice skating skill for her next competition.
Guess the date and time Khloe will fall through the ice. She is set-up with a timer; this will give us the actual time she dips into the Lake. It was a great success and a wonderful fundraiser in 2016.
All proceeds will be for our fight to save Kasoag Lake and the control of invasive species, Fanwort. To purchase ticket please contact Mark Augustus @ 315-283-3476, Karen Nellis @ 315-439-9823, our Secretary, Terry Krawiec or Treasurer, Penny Montgomery. The more tickets sold the greater the purse. KLCA Board members are exempt from winning. Tickets will be sold depending on weather conditions until February 15, 2017.
Good Luck...and Thank-you for your support.
Weed Mats/Permit - Update
One of our Members was in the process of applying for a permit for a weed mat and was told by the NYS DEC they have decided to hold off on permits this year although next year permits will be required. It has been suggested that checking with the DEC and applying for your permits during the Fall of 2016 or early Winter of 2017.
As good neighbors, please keep an eye out for any suspicious behavior and call 911
If you have anything stolen from your property, report it to the local police department. That way they will have a record on what is happening on our lake.
